Belgium manager Roberto Martinez has insisted that there are “no secrets” between his side and England ahead of their third-placed playoff on Saturday.

The two sides have already faced each other once at this summer’s World Cup, with Belgium coming out on top 1-0 in their final group game despite making numerous changes to their side.

Victory for Belgium would see them record their best-ever finish at a World Cup, and Martinez is eager to end the campaign on a winning note.

“It will be the same tactical game. There are no secrets between the two sides. England are dynamic and very quick,” he told reporters at his pre-match press conference.

“They have scored nine goals from dead-ball situations and that is going to be a good test for us. We are on a journey and we need to learn from the games we have played. It is essential for us to perform tomorrow.

“When you finish the tournament you carry the feeling of the last game. It has been an incredible experience and I think everybody in Belgium deserves that winning feeling at the end of the tournament.”

Belgium are the top scorers at this World Cup with 14 goals from nine different players.
